One key to Interstate Logistics’s success is the ability to grow with our customers’ demands. While our trucking division has many assets available, our brokerage division was put in place to handle all of our customers’ freight at the same great prices with the same exceptional service. With over 5,000 approved trucking companies in our database, we will always be able to handle your freight no matter what the volume. Also, more competition for your freight means lower rates by letting hundreds to thousands of trucking companies bid for your business.
All of Interstate Logistics carriers have current insurance and meet the same state and federal requirements that Interstate Logistics meets. Our qualified freight brokers are experts in the trucking industry and will treat your business with the utmost care. All of our brokers direct dispatch with their drivers to keep a tight line of communication no different from using our own trucks and drivers. Our brokerage department also gives you the freedom to move anything at anytime. Since we deal with trucking companies in every corner of North America availability will never be an issue.

A: Agents are paid weekly commissions by direct deposit into your bank account. Your commission is based on a percentage of the gross profit of arrived loads for the previous week. A report would be sent to you weekly showing the loads that were billed and the commissions to be paid to you.
